Сэр Карл Раймунд По́ппер — австрийский и британский философ и социолог. Один из самых влиятельных философов науки XX столетия. Поппер наиболее известен своими трудами по философии науки, а также социальной и политической философии, в которых он критиковал классическое понятие научного метода, а также энергично отстаивал принципы демократии и социального критицизма, которых он предлагал придерживаться, чтобы сделать возможным процветание открытого общества.

К. Поппер является основоположником философской концепции критического рационализма. Он описывал свою позицию следующим образом: «Я могу ошибаться, а вы можете быть правы; сделаем усилие, и мы, возможно, приблизимся к истине».

„By reluctance to criticize some of it, we may help to destroy it all.“

— Karl Popper
Context: If in this book harsh words are spoken about some of the greatest among the intellectual leaders of mankind, my motive is not, I hope, the wish to belittle them. It springs rather from my conviction that, if our civilization is to survive, we must break with the habit of deference to great men. Great men may make great mistakes; and as the book tries to show, some of the greatest leaders of the past supported the perennial attack on freedom and reason. Their influence, too rarely challenged, continues to mislead those on whose defence civilization depends, and to divide them. The responsibility of this tragic and possibly fatal division becomes ours if we hesitate to be outspoken in our criticism of what admittedly is a part of our intellectual heritage. By reluctance to criticize some of it, we may help to destroy it all. Preface to the First Edition

„What a monument of human smallness is this idea of the philosopher king. What a contrast between it and the simplicity of humaneness of Socrates, who warned the statesmen against the danger of being dazzled by his own power, excellence, and wisdom, and who tried to teach him what matters most — that we are all frail human beings.“

— Karl Popper
Context: What a monument of human smallness is this idea of the philosopher king. What a contrast between it and the simplicity of humaneness of Socrates, who warned the statesmen against the danger of being dazzled by his own power, excellence, and wisdom, and who tried to teach him what matters most — that we are all frail human beings. What a decline from this world of irony and reason and truthfulness down to Plato's kingdom of the sage whose magical powers raise him high above ordinary men; although not quite high enough to forgo the use of lies, or to neglect the sorry trade of every shaman — the selling of spells, of breeding spells, in exchange for power over his fellow-men. Vol. 1, Ch 8 "The Philosopher King"
